    This was before Elliott Abrams lost his hair. 

    And before he was convicted of withholding information from Congress during the Iran/Contra Affair. 

    And before he went on to hold high-ranking national security positions under both Bush presidencies.

    Elliot Abrams seems like a apex of the sort of garden-variety sociopath that has taken over the workings of the US gvt/banks/Pantagon/Wall St, etc. The NeoCon’s NeoCon, a terrific student of Strauss and a soulless blood brother of Dick Cheney. Talk about people who need to be tried for Crimes Against Humanity…
